The news of the late traditional ruler was broken to AfroLife by his right hand man in Italy, the CEO of Elite and Logistic Company, Napoli, Mr. Emeka Udalla. Chiavoghilefu’s business foray in Italy spanning some two decades took him all over the country, establishing his bases in the capital Rome, and the southern port city of Napoli from where he shipped out goods for his numerous clients to different destinations across the world.
Of note is the bold steps taken by the late traditional ruler in mobilising the Nigerian Community to stem the rising wave of violent attacks against his compatriots by the now wanted killer and armed robber Joseph Obafueko alias Joe Bendel and his gang in the early 2000. Chiavoghilefu in conjunction with AfroLife and some prominent members of the community met with the Embassy of Nigeria in Rome where strategies were mapped out to neutralise Joe Bendel.
Emmanuel Ikechuwuku Chiavoghilefu who was 62 at his death, was buried yesterday February 26th at his palace in Amaovo-Nkwuogu. An outing church service takes place tomorrow February 28 at St. Stephen’s Anglican Church, Amaovo.
